CVS Employee Advocacy Campaign
CVS Health is an American pharmacy and healthcare company which is pioneering a bold new approach to total health by making quality care more affordable, accessible, simple, seamless and by helping people get well in body, mind and spirit.
In 2018, the giant retail chain launched its biggest beauty campaign dubbed "Beauty in Real Life," which featured a diverse cast of women from all over the U.S. in unretouched print and video imagery. The idea of the campaign was to highlight the connection between the propagation of unrealistic body images and negative health effects, especially in girls and young women. CVS’ aim was to highlight an authentic and more realistic image of beauty for its customers by eliminating access to altering images in its stores. They felt women don't need to be photo-shopped. There is just so much more depth and substance. It makes women just feel better.
The "Beauty in Real Life" campaign got off to a resounding start but previous internal surveys indicated that majority of the employees felt abandoned by limited internal welfare policies and wanted to be more involved with the company's campaign processes; especially, this campaign since CVS represented a diverse set of employees. Overall, staff moral was down and they were less engaging.
